Smile! No matter what you go through. This reminds me of a Thai national I spoke with when I was in Phuket sometime ago. A man of the same age as me, born in a different country, went through poverty when I was well-fed, had no opportunity for education when I didn't treasure one of the best education system in the world(Singapore) I had, went through Tsunami when I was resting in the comfort of my home. Such a contrast. But one thing, he smiled through and is still smiling. Many of his friends are left alone with their entire family wiped out by the Tsunami. It's probably worse being alive than to be dead.
So smile, everybody!
